Netanyahu reportedly considering West Bank withdrawals


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering withdrawing Israeli troops from the West Bank, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

Tuesday’s report comes a day after Netanyahu said during a meeting with the ambassadors of European Union countries that he believes there is little chance of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians resuming anytime soon, and that he is considering what actions to take if negotiations are not resumed.

The Israeli leader also addressed the possibility that he would make a major policy address.

"I have not decided what to say, and when to say it," he said, according to Haaretz.

Haaretz reported that Netanyahu at this time is not considering evacuating more settlements.
